I'm just curious, but what parse program are you anti-zerkers using to arrive at your numbers?
Oh, you don't have one? I guess that your 'facts' are really just opinions based on...nothing? Maybe, at best, personal expierence.
Personally, I've found that the Berserker is fine. This is, as stated above, merely an opinion that's no more valid than yours. That's the fun thing about opinion though, it's subjective.
Berserker, if played well
, feels far more rewarding than my slayer. The slayer allows me to take a nap while doing DPS, since it's an incredibly simple class to play. That doesn't mean that everyone that plays one does well, of course, but if you've played action style console games I'd say it would fall under the 'normal' or 'easy' gameplay modes.
Berserker requires you to be awake and pay attention. This alone will make many players state that berserker DPS is sub-par, because many players are themselves sub-par.
Does the class have issues? Yes. Do all of the classes have issues? Yes. You can find a thread on the forums complaining about every single class and how it's 'broken'.
The up-coming changes to Berserker will certainly help all of us do more damage than we do now, so there's really no reason not
to level one.
All the PvP concerns, by the way, are something I ignore. Slayer is obviously intended to be the
1v1 class. Berserker, meanwhile, does well in large scale battles where it's harder to time dodges on our charge skills. Therefore, using 1v1 scenarios to illustrate why Berserker sucks are invalid from the get-go. Any class should lose to a well played Slayer 1v1.
